  • The Dark Side! Our Syrah is almost onyx in color with intense aromas of blackberry, espresso and spice. The traditional Syrah core of ripe black fruit is supported by well infused tannins. A pleasurable mouth full of wine that finishes forever.

    Wine Profile
    Production Notes
    The 100% Syrah grows in a small block at our Knollwood Vineyard in Oak Knoll District. This section has generally produced the most complex and deeply textured Syrahs. We harvested this fruit on October 16, 2010, then hand-sorted and crushed the fruit into small fermenting bins. The bins were punched down by hand, and after 16 days on the skins, the fruit was pressed off to new barrels. The wine was aged in 100% new oak barrels for 28 months prior to bottling. 18 Months in 100% New Oak (50% French / 50% Virginian).
    Winemaker Notes
    This is a big, bold wine. The color is very dark as we typically find with our estate grown Syrah and is a good indication of the extraction of this wine. The aromas are quite intriguing, offering dark ripe berry fruit and loads of spice and vanillin oak. This richness carries across to the palate where the full-bodied wine expresses a long, spicy finish. The balance of the French and Virginian oaks used in the aging adds another layer of interest to the already deeply layered wine. Drink Now through 2020.
